Recommended Reading List: April, 2022

I got a lot of reading done in April, but never had time to update this post. That’s why it’s late. I was trying hurriedly to finish the next Fey novel, and everything else seemed to get thrown overboard. Much of what I read I liked, which is a nice change of pace from earlier in the year. I also think I’m a bit more […]

Recommended Reading List: March, 2022

I started out reading great guns at the beginning of March and then…I have no idea. Life, maybe? The time change did zing me more than I expected, and I had to study for midterms, but those were gone by mid-month and my reading declined in the second half of the month. So I have no idea. I did start two different mystery anthologies that […]

Recommended Reading List: September, 2021

It’s been an interesting reading month. I started reading a book on West Side Story, which looked truly interesting. It was unbelievably boring, but I finished it anyway. I’m not usually that completist. I think it simply points out how tired I am and how unwilling I was to look for something new. I read a lot of court cases and stuff in Spanish. I […]

A Reader’s Holiday

As I write this, we have a little under 2 days left on the WMG Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter for 2020. I really do think that this Spectacular will help all of its subscribers get through the stay-at-home Zoom holiday season that’s coming up. We have three Calendars of Stories in the Spectacular. The one I focus on is the winter holidays section, because it is […]

Recommended Reading List: October, 2020

What a month of distractions. The election, weather weirdness, an actual run!, and so much more. It’s been tough to find the time to read at times, just because the days are so full. Still, I managed. I tried very hard to read a book by a writer whose work I adore. The book had what we call anti-reader cookies for me. A plethora of […]
